    when I became a reporter again, I resigned from my group, now that I’m free I’m highly considering rejoining soon.

    Yes Sir,David Duke ran for the Senate in 1990.Hanity had a local radio show at that time and supported him.David Duke has also supported the tea party.
    You must not think Hanity was alive before FOX.
    Anyone who says Hanity did not support David Duke in 1990 doesn’t know the truth.

    @papa

    I think the video just puts Bain capital in proper perspective if Romney tries pass himself of as a “job creator”. He basically was a “wealth creator” not a “job creator”(not that their is anything wrong with that but it’s basically don’t try act you know some special secret to creating jobs due to your work experience

    It is obvious that you know nothing about business and the left is playing this video for people just like you! The :harvest: is selling off the new THRIVING companies with many many new employees! Many many jobs were created to make the company attractive for a new buyer. “Harvest” means that they were sucsessfull in turning the company around and growing it and creating jobs.
    It is a nice try and will play well with clueless people but will not play well with anyone with a brain about business.

    I watched the nightly news tonight and it was shocking. It is nothing more than the propaganda wing of the Dem. Party.

    Sicilian Papa wrote: “I used to get Hannity local in New York before he went national. I heard him on a number occasions renounce David Duke.”

    I believe you. He also did it when Duke considered entering the latest Republican primaries.

    Hi, do you live in a State that made pot legal? Just wondering :-)

    You are wrong! I was a Hannity listener in his early days on radio and he renounced Duke on a number of occasions.

    For every company they did that you can find an equal amount they basically rape and pillaged the company for all it’s assets(including people’s pension plans) and then filed for bankruptcy.

    What makes it worse is the tax payer many times where left on the line to pay off the pension plans due to state wide insurance on those. Another thing that bothers me about Mitt’s Vulture Capitalism with these companies is when he bought the companies he would get grants and subsidies from the State or Federal Government before he basically harvested them for all they were worth(once again screwing the Tax payer and making a profit at the same time, all while having minimal empathy for the employees of the companies he screwed over)

  • Coffee Steve

    1 Week till the first debate

    Question: Mr Obama, who are you pulling for in the world series?

    Mr Romney: Why did you endanger your sweet little loveable dog by putting him on your hood? And do you ever put your children on top of the car?

    Should be a fair debate huh? :P

  • Mark

    I should add after Mitt got Corporate Welfare for his companies that filed for bankruptcy before they pillaged it for all it was worth he has the gull to call the 47% “moochers”.

    I think this needs some proof to back up what you are saying. You know some examples of what companies and how this all worked.

    Jayson gets paid by Media Matters to troll this site. And Ralph is right news money demo is 25-54. They are the people with money buying products. The people who watch MSNBC are the virgin kids who sit in their parents dark basement eating Cheetos posting fake Media Matters post like Jayson. They have no money to buy products and they watch MSNBC. The proof if the amount of profit Fox News makes. Fox News is destroying CNN & MSNBC.

    Mitt Romney no stranger to tax breaks, subsidies

    Bain Capital profited from a steel company that got them, and he used them to attract business when he governed Massachusetts

    Reporting from Washington — As Mitt Romney defends his record running a private equity firm, he frequently points to a fast-growing Indiana steel company, financed in part by Bain Capital, that now employs 6,000 workers.

    What Romney doesn’t mention is that Steel Dynamics also received generous tax breaks and other subsidies provided by the state of Indiana and the residents of DeKalb County, where the company’s first mill was built.

    The story of Bain and Steel Dynamics illustrates how Romney, during his business career, made avid use of public-private partnerships, something that many conservatives consider to be “corporate welfare.” It is a commitment that carried over into his term as governor of Massachusetts, when he offered similar incentives to lure businesses to his state.

    Yet as he seeks the GOP presidential nomination, he emphasizes government’s adverse effects on economic growth.

    “Fundamentally, what happens in America that creates jobs is not government. It has its role. But by and large, it gets in the way of creating jobs,” he said during a debate Saturday sponsored by ABC News and Yahoo.

    Bain Capital began looking at investing in the steel start-up in late 1993. At the time, Steel Dynamics was weighing where to locate its first plant, based in part on which region offered the best tax incentives. In June 1994, Bain put $18.2 million into Steel Dynamics, making it the largest domestic equity holder. It sold its stake five years later for $104 million, a return of more than $85 million.

    As Bain made its investment, the state and county pledged $37 million in subsidies and grants for the $385-million plant project. The county also levied a new income tax to finance infrastructure improvements to benefit the steel mill over the heated objections of some county residents.

    Special report: Romney’s steel skeleton in the Bain closet

    Less than a decade later, the mill was padlocked and some 750 people lost their jobs. Workers were denied the severance pay and health insurance they’d been promised, and their pension benefits were cut by as much as $400 a month.

    What’s more, a federal government insurance agency had to pony up $44 million to bail out the company’s underfunded pension plan. Nevertheless, Bain profited on the deal, receiving $12 million on its $8 million initial investment and at least $4.5 million in consulting fees.

    The Federal Bailout That Saved Mitt Romney

    According to the candidate’s mythology, Romney took leave of his duties at the private equity firm Bain Capital in 1990 and rode in on a white horse to lead a swift restructuring of Bain & Company, preventing the collapse of the consulting firm where his career began. When The Boston Globe reported on the rescue at the time of his Senate run against Ted Kennedy, campaign aides spun Romney as the wizard behind a “long-shot miracle,” bragging that he had “saved bank depositors all over the country $30 million when he saved Bain & Company.”

    In fact, government documents on the bailout obtained by Rolling Stone show that the legend crafted by Romney is basically a lie. The federal records, obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reveal that Romney’s initial rescue attempt at Bain & Company was actually a disaster – leaving the firm so financially strapped that it had “no value as a going concern.” Even worse, the federal bailout ultimately engineered by Romney screwed the FDIC – the bank insurance system backed by taxpayers – out of at least $10 million. And in an added insult, Romney rewarded top executives at Bain with hefty bonuses at the very moment that he was demanding his handout from the feds.
